Young people in Luton are taking part in a ground-breaking study which aims to show whether there is a link between air pollution and the health of children.
The £2.5 million research project involving 3,000 primary schoolchildren in Luton and London will also investigate what can be done to prevent damage to growing lungs.
Luton has significant traffic congestion with areas of poor air quality.

It was a record-breaking May for Southend Pier.
More than 45,000 people visited the world’s longest pleasure last month.
Councillors say it was down to the pop-up attractions and the sunny weather over the two bank holidays.
More than 15,000 people visited the Pier on the early May Bank Holiday weekend, with an additional 11,351 on the late May Bank Holiday weekend.
Cllr James Courtenay, Executive Councillor for Growth, said: “It is very encouraging to see so many visitors flocking to the pier this month. While some of this can be attributed to the good weather, boat trips from the pier, pop-up attractions and regular events have all played their part in this month’s success.
“2018 promises to be a milestone year in the pier’s history, with work due to start in autumn on the expansion of the pier entrance into a former penny arcade and designs soon to be published for a new visitor pavilion on the former Bowling Deck."
